On the Ways of the World

On the Ways of the World

For over two minutes, the moon completely covered the sun, immediately turning day into dusk.

As the sun’s corona peeked through the darkness, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

An electric energy filled my body and soul, as the thrill of joy rushed from the depths of my spirit and were released through my vocal chords, producing a shriek from a quiet, solid place. Continue reading “On the Ways of the World”

The Power of Renewing Your Mind

The Power of Renewing Your Mind

Along this journey called life, there have been plenty of times when I needed something but didn’t have what I needed to get it; or wanted something that I didn’t have the finances to purchase.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making it a point to be grateful for the income I have versus stressing over the income I lost when I left my full-time job.

I’m thankful for the fact that over the last couple of years, my income has increased, become more steady, and I’m almost bringing in as much as I was when I was working a 9-5 (or sometimes 50 plus hours a week), with less hours worked, more joy, peace and control over my life.

How I’m Taking My Life Back

How I’m Taking My Life Back

Life is a beautiful mix of pain, joy, the unknown, what we can see and can’t, life-changing moments, heart-shattering experiences and divine miracles.

Over the last few years, life has tried to break me with one family death after another, my brother going to prison, financial lack like I’ve never experienced before, intense depression and anxiety.

I’m relieved to say that the long, dark, treacherous storm is over! A rainbow of love, peace, comfort and strength surrounds me, the sun is shining bright, and everything is looking good! Continue reading “How I’m Taking My Life Back”

Staying on My Path When the Journey Gets Tough

Staying on My Path When the Journey Gets Tough

So many times I’ve wanted to give up. On this blog, on freelance writing, on following my dreams. It pulls so much out of me that I wonder if it’s worth it. Or if I have what it takes to keep on. Sometimes it seems like I’m doing so much, and things are getting better, but not “fast enough”.

I want to jump ahead, to where I have more than enough financially, I’m fulfilled emotionally, strong spiritually and have the body of my dreams, lol. I want to get to the life I see in my mind, where I’m comfortable, where everything looks good. Continue reading “Staying on My Path When the Journey Gets Tough”

She IS (A Poem)

She IS (A Poem)

Sweet as honey, wrapped in soul, wisdom and truth.

A Black butterfly, with nothing to prove.

Words shine light on her heart’s deepest cries.

She’s a blank canvas. Masterpiece in quiet. Continue reading “She IS (A Poem)”

Choosing Faith Over Your Feelings

Choosing Faith Over Your Feelings

This week has been tough so far. I have plenty of assignments to work on and tasks to accomplish, and this is normally all I need to get and stay motivated. Something about this week is different, though. I literally don’t want to do anything. Nothing. Especially not write this blog post. I told myself several times that I was not going to write this.
